Requirements for gTLD Registries, Registrars to Take Effect in February 2017

> New Registration Data Directory Services Requirements for gTLD Registries,
> Registrars to Take Effect in February 2017
> 26 July 2016
> ICANN today announced that gTLD contracted parties must update their
> Registration Data Directory Services (RDDS) by 1 February 2017. Registries and
> registrars are required to implement the new Registration Data Access Protocol
> (RDAP) gTLD Profile <https://www.icann.org/rdap-gtld-profile> . Registries
> must also implement the data specifications defined in the Registry
> Registration Data Directory Services Consistent Labeling and Display Policy
> <https://www.icann.org/resources/pages/rdds-labeling-policy-2016-07-26-en> .
> The RDAP gTLD Profile and the RDDS Consistent Labeling and Display Policy are
> the products of community efforts to improve the current system used to
> discover who controls a domain name. This system comprises data retrieval
> protocols WHOIS and a web-based version of WHOIS and databases controlled
> by registries and registrars that contain domain registration information.
> ICANN has notified contracted parties that they are responsible for modifying
> their systems within six months. ICANN consulted these parties when defining
> the new requirements and implementation plans.
> The Registration Data Access Protocol was developed by the Internet
> Engineering Task Force <https://ietf.org/> to eventually replace the WHOIS
> protocol. This new protocol is superior to WHOIS in terms of data access
> security, support for international characters, extensibility, and in the
> standardization of query, response and error messages. The RDAP gTLD Profile
> maps ICANN policy and contractual requirements onto technical requirements in
> order to standardize directory services across gTLD contracted parties.
> The RDDS Consistent Labeling and Display Policy is a Consensus Policy
> developed and adopted in accordance with ICANN Bylaws. The policy is the
> result of recommendations adopted by the GNSO Council after the completion of
> the Thick WHOIS Policy Development Process. The ICANN board adopted these
> recommendations on 7 February 2014.
> The goal of the RDDS Consistent Labeling and Display Policy is to align the
> way registries and registrars label and display registration data outputs. The
> policy uses the output specifications found in the 2013 Registrar
> Accreditation Agreement as the standard, thus only registries need to update
> their systems. Changes might include renaming or re-ordering fields and
> displaying additional data, such as registrar abuse contact information.
